[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Martina McBride[/lastfm] – “Teenage Daughters” (Republic Nashville)

FOX is debuting a new sitcom at the end of November…”I Hate My Teenage Daughter“.

The creators had to be thinking of this song when they came up with the premise.

Even if you had teenage sons – as I did – Martina’s 3:30 gripe session still resonates, carrying the lyrical imagery and vocal punch that characterizes all of Martina McBride’s best work.

And yet it comes across in the song’s delivery that Martina loves her daughters no matter how many gray hairs they give her.

Country Music’s ability to capture those moments and turn them into song has always been one if the genre’s strengths.

And I expect it always will be.
